Sprints

Sprints let you focus your attention on tasks that require immediate action. It also lets you build projects and plan your week at the same time. Sprints also keep team members on track and focused on top priorities.

With Sprints, you can set specific sprint periods in weeks where a task or group of tasks needs to be completed. Adding your existing tasks to Sprints will let you know which tasks need to be prioritized weekly.

If you are familiar with or currently using Scrum or Agile methodologies, then chances are you know how valuable sprints can be in making your project management process efficient and effective.

Epics

Epics are a great way to manage a set of tasks that can encompass multiple projects and departments.

Using epics will organize disparate tasks into a singular “Epic” view. For example, if you’re creating a website, and you have smaller tasks that involve multiple projects, teams or departments, and falls into a larger task, i.e. designing a header (graphic design team), formatting CSS (developers), etc., it would be best to create one Epic so you can manage all the tasks that fall into one larger task in one page.

Hubstaff Tasks’ new Stand Ups feature offers organization owners and managers an agile way to keep up to date with what their staff is working on.

Team members will be to submit an update each day or week detailing what they worked on that day, what they are going to work on next, and if they ran into any blockers.

Standups help you stay updated with how your team is tracking with their assigned projects and tasks.
